Felt like heaven being in there 🤩 this room is called “fruttaio” 🥂this is the way to produce the delicious “Recioto” wine type - the delicious Recioto di Soave is made of the indigenous Garganega grape 🍇 Here the bunches are hung to dry in special nets, where they stay until at least the end of the following March. During this process, called appassimento, the grapes are checked daily, and any imperfect grapes are removed. Appassimento gradually shrivels the grapes, concentrating the sugars and flavours. After drying, the grapes are very gently pressed, extracting only the very best portion of the juice. The resulting must is put into small oak barrels, some new and some used, where it ferments and matures for 10/12 months.
Harvest is just finished that the forecast is going nuts 😕 flooding all over the Languedoc, I wish all the best to all people and wine producers and hoping their cellar are safe 🙏🏻 sending good vibes!
Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. 🤩 Alsace is one of this place with so much magic 🙏🏻🥂 ever visited this gorgeous place?!
